Always on the road and never a dull moment!

We love sharing our message of inspiration, courage, integrity and triumph over adversity with the communities we visit, and especially with school-aged children. This week while visiting Tallahassee, Florida, the CAF Red Tail Squadron RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit was once again the stopping point for a school field trip. These students learned the inspiring story of the Tuskegee Airmen and saw our P-51C Mustang aircraft up close and personal.

Students from Tallahassee speaking with CAF Red Tail Squadron Leader, Brad Lang

Want your students to see our exhibit, or better yet bring the RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit to your school or event? Contact us at 812-240-2560 or to find out how to bring RISE ABOVE to you or when we plan to make a stop at an air show or other major event in your area.


Next stop…April 24-28th at Warriors and Warbirds in Monroe, North Carolina.  We hope to see you there!


The CAF Red Tail Squadron is volunteer-driven 501c3 organization that operates as part of the Commemorative Air Force. For more information about the Squadron and its educational mission, visit
